Subject: Infinite Design - Calculating Insanity (EP) Review
I must admit I'm not a fan of this intro. It starts with sounds of writing and typing, and has grunting/moaning/panting in the background. The intro finishes up with an evil laugh. Personally, I didn't really like it or see how it was relevant to the rest of the album. Anyway, continuing on to the actual music...

First up, the drumming. It is intense. Relying heavily on blast on blast beats, the drumming is nearly perfect to the human ear. The notes are even, the tempo maintained, all extremely accurate. The drummer almost sounds like a machine. The kit sound is nice, polished. The kit itself doesn't sound brutal at all, rather it sounds almost new. A full clean sound. Definitely a plus.

The guitars are basically power chords chugging with melodic high leads. The chugging riffs are kinda like slam riffs. The melodic leads tend to be fast tremolo picking, wailing a couple octaves above the power chords. Now the bass on this album is interesting. Simply put, bass=rhythm guitar. A bass guitar doesn't exist in this band. Which explains why this album is more treble inclined. Still, it doesn't sound tinny, and for a lack of bass it actually sounds pretty full.

The vocals are varied, switching off between grunts and snarls. This band actually benefits from multiple vocalists, a definite plus. It adds more contrast throughout the album. Multiple vocalists are a bit rare, so this is definitely something this band has going for them. Plus there is very rarely a pig squeal. Maybe there's only one. Not a good album for pig squeals, so the lack of them is also a plus.

For an album overview, you can notice a few things. First, the album has a bit of reverb, which provides the black metal feel in "Focus Point." Also, in some parts it appears to have string synth in background, but that could just be the way the effects are done on the guitar. Overall, it's an intense, fast paced, though short album. For the most part it has a traditional tech death sound, but varies enough from stereotypes to keep you interested. Definitely worth a listen.
